Hadleigh Rugby Football Club are again hosting The Hadleigh TAG 2017.

Building on the success of last year’s events, the club will be welcoming up to 400 players from all over the Eastern Counties, in the U7-U8 age groups.

Clubs from Ipswich to Woodbridge, Chelmsford to Felixstowe, Braintree to Sudbury will be in attendance.

TAG Rugby is a form of non-contact rugby, open to all ages but which is specifically used for the development of the sport of ‘minis’ and U7/U8 age groups. It also allows players to practice their technical skills, to experience the passion of playing the sport and to develop a love for both the rules and the spirit of the game.

Last year, with more than 330 players from 16 clubs attending, it was the largest tournament of its kind in the British Isles.
